Clementine Quilt a Long - Month #6 Strawberry Star

Hi Peeps!

It's the 25th again....I know I bang on about it but I can't be the only one who feels like the year is just whizzing past them? We're over halfway through it??


Anywho on to this month's block!

Once again I think this block would make a fab scrap quilt....

 The Strawberry good to have a block this month that is actually quite easy to whip up and with very little effort when it came to point matching...phew!

Although I did manage some pretty awesome stripe fluke really!

As always this block is available to download for a small donation from here courtesy of The Fat Quarter Shop in aid of St Jude Children's research hospital.

Next month is the last post and it will give you the setting options to complete your quilt....I can't wait to see mine all together and deliberately have kept them tucked away in a box as I complete each month so I get a surprise also LOL

There are quite a few fabulous quilters sewing along and if you'd like to have a squizzy at their fabric choices, here is the list.

Pinkilicious - A Sunday Morning Quilt, But It's Saturday

Hi Peeps!

Welcome to June! Halfway through the year already?!

I went to drop a quilt to my lovely friend Sandra and look what she had just pulled off the frame!!

It's my Pinkilicious Quilt from the Fabulous book Sunday Morning Quilts!!

I just love it....I know I always say that about every single quilt when it comes back quilted LOL
Plus my scrap box of pink's and low volumes is pretty much empty?? to find a pattern for the blue scrap box!!

What I think I love most about these scrap quilts, that like my Vintage 9 Patch, is revisiting some of my favourite fabrics that show up again as little strips or pieces.

Quite often this sends me off on a frantic internet search for some favourite fabric...sometimes successfully but more often not... thank goodness, or the fabric stash would never get smaller!!!

I backed it with a vintage sheet in the perfect complimentary pinks, with a touch of mauve, and although difficult to photograph it shows up the floral and swirly pantograph beautifully.

I wish I'd used a little more of the silver/metallic Jennifer Sampou fabric as a highlight as it provides a fantastic subtle pop........

I've glue basted the binding down and had grand ideas of hand stitching it over the long weekend....but I doubt that will happen and I will end up machine stitching it LOL

Have a fabulous weekend Peeps xx

Linking up with Amanda and Myra
